In BIG RED: The Three-Month Voyage of a Trident Nuclear Submarine, Douglas Waller penetrates for the first time one of the most secretive worlds in the U.S. military–a Trident nuclear submarine with its 24 strategic missiles and more than 120 nuclear warheads.

The Cold War may be over but the U.S. Navy still has Tridents lurking under the oceans, always ready at a moment’s notice to unleash a nuclear holocaust. Granted the most access any journalist has ever had to these awesome war machines, Waller takes you aboard one of the Tridents, the USS Nebraska, for a tension-packed, three-month patrol under the Atlantic Ocean.
